"Graduating from DeNeuville was a second chance for me. I
have six children and left school in the eleventh grade. I
thought many times about giving up. But they didn't give up
on me, so I couldn't give up on myself. I found love, patience
and understanding in that building and they never judged me."
- 2010 DeNeuville graduate, Katisha
It's been estimated that dropouts from the Class of 2010 will cost Tennessee almost $8 billion in lost wages over their lifetime. Yet we know that if a student earns a high school diploma, they can expect to earn almost $10,000 more than a high school dropout. Most of our graduates plan to attend community colleges or other trade schools. Think what a life-changing experience this will be not only for them but for their children as well.
